And that summarizes it. This is a very beautiful establishment altogether that caters to all ages. Even little kids will have a ball in this place. The view from the top is mesmerizing. However, I came here for the red wines. I was not impressed with their Iconic line. You would definitely expect something better considering the the proximity of very serious competition. This is primarily a wine house and, I feel, most of the efforts should be concentrated in that direction. Which is why, when it comes to their red wine line, the rating is, truly, a 2, if not a 1. The restaurant is outstanding for appearance and service. Nevertheless, it's worth seeing. I can only hope they can improve their wine making.

My family and I went to the cable car in the Santa Cruz vineyards. The place is beautiful and the vista house is great. However, it is not baby-friendly when you want to use your baby carriage.
The staff was super friendly and they were always willing to help. I think it is a place you should visit if you are around but you may find it not much for the price. The sighting is the best part!!

Had an amazing tour of this vineyard. If you ever get the chance, come check it out and have a tour with Erwin. I don’t think even Coopers Hawk back home has people with as much wine culture knowledge. We basically had the place to ourselves, since it was a weekday and later in the afternoon.

I can’t thank Erwin enough for his hospitality and for sharing his knowledge of wine and how to appreciate and draw out the flavor in a more complete way than I had been all these years.

We will be back!

We had the tour ICONO today which is one of the most expensive. Its supposed to be 2 hours for 50€ per Person and it was like nothing included - not how they said. We learned almost nothing about the winery. The first hour we were left alone with the cable car and the small museums upstairs which are not really recommendable, there is not much to see and the astronautic museum was closed. The second hour, we had a young guide who didn't tell us much about the 4 wines - not how expected. No visit to the viñedos, no barrel room, nothing! We didn't get any cheese plate what was included. Not even water between the 4 tastings!!! They said, all because of pandemia, but please, then reduce the price if you can't hold what you promise for the tour!!!!
And beside, the prices are too high for the quality and quantity what you get in the restaurant.
For the same price of the tour, better buy 4 bottles of wine for each person.
We did a lot of wine tours in our life but this was the worst ever!
Not worth the price! Not recommendable at all! Very unprofessional (stuff)! I feel very dissatisfied and ripped off!!!

Hola, una lástima que tu experiencia no haya sido como esperabas... Si te comento lo siguiente: En la descripción del tour se indica que el recorrido en el cerro es autoguiado... El guía está en la parte del recorrido y degustación que incluye el jardín de variedades, parte de la bodega (lo que se puede mostrar por protocolo Covid). El observatorio no está incluido en este tour, es otro tour que en estos momentos no podemos realizar por los horarios de toque de queda. Con respecto al agua, tenemos dispensadores de agua disponibles en toda la viña con agua purificada y en las degustaciones siempre hay disponible para los pasajeros que requieran de ella. La tabla de quesos que indicas, no se ofrece en nuestra web. Con respecto al restaurante, en tu visita no hiciste ningún reparo en la comida, de hecho indicaron que estaba todo muy bien. No entiendo el comentario negativo luego de eso. En nuestra viña no hacemos clases, buscamos realizar una experiencia relajada y agradable, en donde lo fundamental es el vino y cómo éste conecta con las culturas que inspiran nuestras etiquetas (las que están en el cerro muy bien representadas).

Had a great time visiting this place. I enjoyed the teleferica and the little museum on top of the hill. Is a bit expensive the ticket but if you are in the nearby is worth to be visited

39000 CLP / pax for visiting an (almost) totally artificial cellar with a tasting of 3 mid-range wines cannot be named other than rip-off. The complete visit of the site including the little cable car tour, the little museum, the visit of the winery and the (poor) tasting session lasts between 2 and 2 1/2 hours. Interesting but almost totally fake and definitely a trap for tourists. Yet the scenery around the site is excellent.

We travelled from Sào Paulo, Brazil, to visit Chile for a holiday. We had planned two days, out of a 10 day trip, in this specific valley to experience the splendor of what Chilean Wine had to offer. My wife had booked a tour at this winery, because they had a "teleférico" (chair lift) to reach the top of the hill where they had a little museum setup to pay homage to the original native inhabitants.

We were very excited to take this tour and arrived 30 minutes earlier than our reservation time. We arrived and were the second car in the parking lot. The grounds, vineyard, and buildings are very beautiful and well kept. I was quickly disappointed (underwhelmed) by the reception from the young lady who received us. She basically told us, yes the tour starts in 30 minutes and you can wait in the gift shop or have a seat in another lounge. We encountered other staff who were also not interested in talking to us or engaging us, like the girl in the gift shop, who we actually had to say hola to so she knew we were there. At 10 minutes before the tour, there were 3 young ladies all at the reception desk playing on their phones and laughing together, and no interest in the 15 guests that they now had for the tour. When the tour started we were directed to the teleférico and handed a map of the top of the hill. It was basically a self guided tour up top and I was disappointed. There was a observatory at the top of the hill, which was a concrete building that you could only get an outside view of.

When arriving down below, we were directed to their manufacturing areas and equipment, which was outside and incredibly dirty. My wife is a native Portuguese speaker and its a second language for me, but the girl giving the tour was a very fast Spanish speaker and also not clear in her explainations. I did not want to taste the wines after seeing the equipment that they used to manufacture it and I was finished. My wife decided to try and she felt that they were more medium to low end wines, but the price tags per bottle didn't match. All in all a very disappointing experience and we would have been much better served spending our time at another one of the local wineries, like Viu Mananet, which we did the following day and was very impressed with their tour and tasting. Do your research on the area and the other options, but for us, this was not a stop we could recommend.

We have family in Chile and they all recommended we visit Viña Santa Cruz. It is really an impressive place, beautiful scenery, interesting exhibits, however, we found the wine to be "just OK" when compared to other wineries in the area. I recommend visiting the location and taking the tour and tasting, however save your suitcase space for wines from some of the surrounding viñas as their product is better. If the wines were better, I would have given it a higher rating. (Remember, wines are very personal, so what I like may not be what you like. That said, we drink a lot of Chilean wine.)

This was an interesting winery visit that I took from Santa Cruz.............the estate is about 30 minutes away in the Lolol Valley.
The harvesting had started and it was good to get into the wine-making process followed by the the tasting.
With having done some wine courses, it was good to have a guide who was able to answer some of the more technical questions.
Tasting in the cellar was more authentic to some of the other wineries that I visited during my Chilean travels

Frankly we would have preferred to either start here or skip it altogether. The other vineyards in the region have way better customer service and wine. The museum "tour" is self-guided and it felt like a waste of an hour. The information is interesting, but we could have done it in 15 minutes.
